Helpful staff. Good enough breakfast. Location. Interesting design )))
High audibility, door creaking, rust on plumbing :( Hostel needs spring cleaning:)
Friendly atmosphere. Good bus connections to everywhere in Madison. Good WIFI connection.
Breakfast could be earlier.
The price was the only thing right about this place
The day I was supposed to arrive, I received an email saying if we didn't arrive before 10pm we wouldn't be able to check in. Our flight was due to arrive after 11pm. What were we supposed to do, sleep at the airport until 8am the next day? This policy of theirs should have been made very clear when I booked it. After many emails and phone calls, the hostel did not allow us to stay there the first night I booked and forced us to just figure it out as we were dashing between our connecting flights. On top of all that, the night we did stay there, we came back from a wedding rather late, after 10pm, so the front desk wasn't staffed. They had changed the door code on the front door. We couldn't get in. There was another hostel guest who was also trapped outside and was pretty angry considering he'd been stuck there for an hour. This was really the icing on the cake. The hostel is horribly and unprofessionally run and was absolutely awful.
Staff are friendly and actively response to every request. A lake nearby the location makes it great experience.
Not so quiet if you sleep on the top bed where can hear some medium volume noise of machine up outside the window.
It was exactly what I needed - a safe, affordable space near the conference I was attending.
Nothing could have been better - it was exactly what I needed. I was slightly delayed one morning because the shower was already in use when I went to use it; but I attribute that to inadequate planning on my part.
With a stay at HI Madison, you'll be centrally located in Madison, just a 5-minute walk from Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center and 9 minutes by foot from Wisconsin Historical Museum. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
